Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture

Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture

Would you like to create tangible memories of your wedding?

Weddings – big or small, traditional or wacky, lavishly extravagant or cosy & intimate – it is a day to be remembered. However you choose to celebrate, your wedding day should be filled with Impressive Memories.

With months (possibly years) of planning, and an enormous amount of work and effort you think you have covered every possible idea to make your day absolutely perfect. No doubt you’ve spent evenings knee deep in Pinterest boards, dreaming of your perfect day.

Because let’s face it…none of us want our day to be bland or predictable. Nobody wants peach silk bridesmaids, do they? Everyone wants to have the wow factor and for their day to be remembered as being spectacular.

Fear not!! I can help you create 6 ideas that absolutely nobody else can replicate. Guaranteed to be as unique as the couple who are tying the knot…

Here are 6 personalised memories for you to incorporate into your wedding day celebrations.

#1 Bride & Groom Hand Cast

To have and to hold 

Why not create a completely personal work of art with a 3d hand cast incorporating those all-important wedding rings? You can organise this yourself or why not suggest that friends and family contribute to buy you this as a totally unique wedding gift?

Hand casting for couples starts from £135. A little bit more if you’d like to include ornate rings with stone settings.

This beautiful example was created by a couple who were first married in Serbia (the grooms home), then had a second wedding here in Fife (the brides home). The newlyweds visited my studio (between weddings) and the plan was for the cast to be hand delivered, by the father of the bride, on his next journey to Serbia.

#2 Wedding Cufflinks for the Groom

From this day forward

What more could a Groom ask for on his wedding day than to wear personalised cufflinks created from his very own son or daughter? 

Travis made these for his Daddy as a surprise gift on the morning of his mummy and daddy’s wedding day. It was quick, clean and simple for Travis to pop to my studio and have his prints taken, but means the absolute world to his parents to have their son at their wedding. Now his little hand and footprints are captured for a lifetime at the moment of such an impressive event.

I decided to get my husband a gift for our wedding day, personalised cufflinks with my son’s hand and footprint, however, I had left it a bit late for timing but Jen made sure they would be ready on time! Her studio is beautiful! I almost cried each time I received my items from her. I cannot thank her enough and urge people to have a look on her site! She is amazing at what she does, I can’t wait to be back in her studio again one day!

#3 Your Wedding Dress on a Silver Pandora Charm

For better, for worse

Would you like to wear your wedding dress every day? Well, you can’t…because you’d look like an idiot. Imagine going on the school run wearing your wedding dress? Nipping around the supermarket? It’s not gonna happen is it?

But you could have a silver charm made with an impression of your wedding dress. You could wear it on your Pandora bracelet, on a pendant or maybe a ring? Then you COULD wear it everyday…impressive!

These aren’t in my online shop at the moment, drop me a message and I’ll help you order this charm today.

#4 Your Wedding Bouquet in a handmade silver charm

For richer, for poorer

Flowers make your wedding day bloom…ing lovely! I adore fresh flowers and, for me, they are a hugely important part any special occasion. Sadly though, flowers don’t last long – but jewellery can last a lifetime.

Do you have a favourite flower? My personal favourite flower is a lily, which is why I adore making silver fingerprint lilies.

Created from a love heart of silver and gently rolled into a lily, they have the fingerprint impression of a loved one tucked inside. It could be a guest who lived too far away and was unable to attend your wedding. Or a loved one no longer with us. Whoever you choose.

I recently made a pair of fingerprint lily earrings for a lovely lady. She was delighted with them and I think they will be a popular choice for everyone.

A truly professional job by a very caring lady. I can’t thank her enough for all her help during a very difficult time for me. I am absolutely delighted with my gorgeous items, they are unique and stunning. I definitely recommend entrusting Jen with your priceless memories. She will give you all the help and advice you want.

#5 Wedding Guest Fingerprint Plate

In sickness and in health

When you’re planning a wedding you also have to plan who will share your special day.

It might be that some guests are ill and don’t manage to spend the day with you as they’d planned. They could still be part of capturing a memory by having them create a fingerprint tree of family and friends.

They will love being part of your wedding family tree!

Each guest can add a leaf with their fingerprint and even leave a signature or a message for you both.

#6 Honouring a deceased loved one at your wedding

Until death do us part.

Your wedding day is a celebration surrounded by loved ones, sadly we may have relatives and friends who’ve passed away and can’t be there for your big day. That doesn’t mean they can’t still be part of your celebration – there are a few ways you can incorporate them into your special occasion.

I offer a range of jewellery that incorporates locks of hair, cremation ashes, fingerprints and handwriting and signatures. You can find out more about Memorial memories in a blog that I wrote here.

Conclusion

These are just 6 ideas to let you see how to make your wedding as unique as you are.

If you have a question about any of the items shown here or you’re left wondering…

Who can help bring my ideas to reality?

The answer is…

“I do”

And you don’t even need to get down on one knee to ask me.

Best Wishes

ROSY GOLD FIngerprint jewellery

NEW Rosy Golden Moments

First, there was pure silver, then there was sterling silver. I was asked for gold and along came Golden Moments…so what was I asked for next?

“Can you make Rose Gold fingerprint jewellery?”

Yes! I can now make you Rosy Golden Moments!

Fingerprint and miniprint jewellery in a pretty rosy golden finish.

What do you think? Are you a fan of rose gold? I love it. From iPhones, trainers, makeup, jewellery and not forgetting wine…I am a bit of a fan of rose gold…so I was pretty excited to start trying to make rose gold fingerprint and miniprint jewellery.

All that glitters is not necessarily gold.

If you read my blog on my Golden Moments you’ll know that I now do a full range of jewellery in a beautiful golden finish without the high costs of hallmarked gold. Perfect if you’d rather spend £50 than £500. You can read about them here and find a small selection in my online shop.

I am delighted to say that Rosy Golden Moments will now be available at Impressive Memories too.

Just like my popular Golden Moments range, these are made from a gorgeous new metal at a fraction of the cost of gold, but all the beauty and shine.

Impressive Customer Story…

December 2016, a customer who has been to me many times, rang me. We’ve captured her three children’s little hands and feet in jewellery and ceramics over the years, but this time the call wasn’t about them.

She was facing losing a very precious friend and fellow young mum. We chatted through a few different options and made a plan.

December is a busy month for all of us, and workwise for me, I am usually exhausted but when she called again to say time was limited and she was flying down to share New Year with her friend, we knew it was time to take the fingerprints.

It was the eve of Hogmanay. We arranged to collect a fingerprint kit that she would take on her flight to spend time with a brave, courageous and much-loved friend. I talked her through all she needed to do, and the best way to do it. And off she went…

In February it had been on my mind that I hadn’t asked how the print taking had gone – I dropped her a quick message. She was back down south for what would be a final visit.

This courageous mum’s battle ended on the 17th of February. Having defeated cancer once, her second chance at life – that everyone had hoped for – was not to be. A young mum with everything to live for had had it cruelly taken away.

Just two hours after her passing, I got a message to tell me. And yes, my eyes filled with tears reading her message. I hadn’t met this brave lady, but I’d been allowed to be part of capturing a memory for two very impressive friends. I also don’t think there is a mum amongst us that wouldn’t ache, imagining the horror of coming to terms with the inevitable fate she was dealt.

At Impressive Memories, I deal with lots of emotional situations. Celebrations and happy events, but also some very harrowing ones too. There is something very touching when a person feels able to share difficult times with you too.

So here we are now in April and I’d like to share the beautiful memories we’ve made.

Lisa liked the way my logo had two interlocked fingerprints and asked for their charm to be made this way too. Best friends, their prints side by side – a pinky promise x

The reverse is hand engraved.

Hayley wore her children’s charms on her necklace, (I made both her son’s charms) but she decided on a birthday treat and a new Pandora style of bracelet. Alongside her new charm, it made a beautiful new piece of jewellery.

As I was making this for Hayley I was also experimenting with my new Rosy Gold and decided to try and make an extra gift. I had no idea if it would be successful, but if it was, I would then need to ask Hayley if she wouldn’t mind being ‘An Impressive Tester’!! This involves being gifted a new trial piece to wear and see if it stands up to the rigours of life – I won’t sell anything unless I know it will bring happiness – not heartache.

Each side of this heart bead has a fingerprint of each of these best friends. Beads have a central core through them to allow them to spin around the bracelet. The hint of pink amongst the silver bracelet looked so pretty.

When Hayley came to collect her order she was happy to test run her new, surprise addition too. Thank you, Hayley!!

I’ll let you know when Rosy Golden Moments will be available to buy. In the meantime, if you’d like to start planning YOUR Impressive Memories jewellery you might find this eBook helpful.
